Default Recent Shots (Texas State RR Steam, UP)

First off, I'd like to wish everybody a Happy Thanksgiving. I hope everyone has some good turkey.

Anyways, to the trains.... I had the opportunity to travel to Palestine.....Texas last weekend to shoot the Texas State Railroad (TSRR). Also, I caught a couple UP trains on my way to and from Palestine (~300 miles from San Antonio). Also, as I learned from other railfans, I missed the Bush unit (#4141) on an OLS special by 5 minutes at Palestine. I guess there is always next time...

To the pictures...
